    I realized a few domains I forgot to put a plain html file to show a blank page.
    Is it a big security risk when its like this just showing the file directories?

    Why leave any loopholes, whether it's a risk or not, if it can be abused why bother even risking it.
    The time it took you to write this post, you could have prevented it.

    Exactly what Moosey said. Removing any unwanted files will also make your website just that millisecond faster to get a higher conversion rate! :D
